Hi Anonymous:
Lets look at this as a fun project. Lot's of us ALWAYS throw the instructions away first just so there's more of a challenge. Anybody can follow instructions but without them, you have to use logic. It's FUN TIME!
- First, separate all of the parts into separate pieces, by description, size, colour, any hint you can get.
- Next, spread the tent out, right side up, so that you can see its general shape.
- Mentally pretend that it is inflated full of air so you can visualize what it's supposed to look like assembled.
- Lots of tents are held to the ground with Tent Pegs. If there are loops around the perimeter of the base, there should be pins (wire or plastic) that will go through these and into the ground.
Support - something has to hold the tent up. It could be a post in the centre, flexible hoops, pieces of pipe.... It's up to you to sort out the pieces, arrange then so that when they are attached to each other they can go through loops in the tent fabric and ultimately hold it up.
- This is the time when you either say "Hey, I can do this" or "I need more help, this is what the tent looks like". Either way, We'd like to hear how it goes.
Remember, It's FUN!

HOW DO I PUT UP A TENT


Don't panic if you've never pitched a tent before. It seems scary when you first get started but with a bit of practice you will be doing it within minutes.
The most important thing is to practice putting it up before you go on your camping trip. There's nothing worse than the sun setting and no light left around you as you struggle to pitch your tent.
Here are my tips to help you get started: Make sure the area where you want to put your tent is clear, without any rocks or big bumps underneath, otherwise you won't be comfortable.
Don't pitch your tent on a low lying ground. If it rains - your tent site will be flooded.
To protect your tent you should lay a groundsheet down as tents can be damaged by punctures and moisture. Now take out the poles and insert them into the proper sleeves of the tent. The instruction manuals are usually pretty straight forward and helpful. Place both ends of the pole in the metal rings and the poles with flex as the tent begins to take shape. Straighten the tent by pulling the material straight and making sure the poles are stretched taut to the outer point. Now secure the tent into the stakes at the corners. Make sure they are really firmly in the ground so they can resist wind and being knocked into.

Instruction for setup of American Camper tent 8x11


Finally figured it out through trial and error. This right here is the only correct explanation given anywhere on the net.

First, make sure you have all of your poles. There will be 4 straight green ones, 4 straight blue, 4 straight burgundy with plastic feet, 4 curved yellow, 2 small orange arches, a straight pink and a straight white.

Before you start putting the poles together, stake the tent down at every loop point around the base of the tent. There should be 10 of them. Make sure they're fairly tight and the floor of the tent is taught and flat but not so tight that you tear the tent at the seam. Stake 1 corner first. Then put the second stake through the second loop in order and using a firm pressure, pull away from the first stake, along the line of the tent base, make taught and push the second stake into the ground. Repeat until finished.

The first pole assembly uses in this order, going out from the yellow arch, which is in the center. From one side of that arch, add one green, then a curved yellow, then another green and a burgundy at the bottom. Do the same from the other side of the center arch piece.

This arch outlines the door and goes through the 3 loops on the front of the tent, around the door, so the poles hold the tent up. the loops at the bottom are not for the poles. Every loop around the bottom are where the stakes go to hold it down. For now point the feet towards the back of the tent wherever they will stand on their own. You can fine tune it and firm it up once you get the second arch in place.

All green ones should now be used up.

For the second arch, do the same thing but use the blue instead of the green. So from the one side of the yellow arch, 1 blue, 1 curved yellow, one blue and one burgundy. Same order from the other side of the arch.

Now all the poles should be used up except for the straight pink one and the straight white one. These two go together to make a straight pole that goes through the metal loops attached to the yellow arch pieces and locks the two arch assemblies apart at the top.

Now this takes some maneuvering and some word smithery to describe but what you want to do is make sure the feet of the front arch assembly, are pointed towards the back of the tent and stop at the side. The back arch feet will point towards the front of the tent. They both stop about 6 inches BEFORE the center tie down loop on the SIDES of the tent, on either side of the center loop. The front arch will actually lean forward, with the feet pointed behind it and wedged into the ground, right up against the tent at the bottom, move it around until you have a nice firm feel to it. Same with the back arch but this one will lean away from the back of the tent and the feet pointed towards the front. Once you get the back arch into place, it will really firm up and won't budge.

Another way to describe it would be that the two arch assemblies feet will point towards each other at the side of the tent, about 6 inches before they reach the center loop on either side.

Hope this helped. =)

Tesco 6 Person Vis-a-Vis Tent Instructions


Whoever they employed to write the instructions should be shot or go back to kindergarten....how difficult can it be?

Anyway, this tent is relatively easy to put up IF you know how to do it...which the instructions are painfully inadequate. It (un)helpfully uses colour coding on black and white print out and not explaining which way around the longer/shorter poles should be. Actually, once the poles are in, the instructions are ok....but it is a major point and wastes a shtload of time.
There are 2 LONG (well, slightly longer) poles, with a yellow sticker on the end (which comes off after 1 use of the tent). Start on one side of the tent with 2 poles (one longer, one shorter). Slide the long pole into the inner rib (ie towards the middle of the tent), then put in the shorter pole on the outside rib (i.e.the furthest away from the middle). You do need some grunt to force these into place, but at least they go (they won't if you put the wrong pole in the wrong slot). Then do the other side of the tent, longer first (inside), shorter second (outside). Then just pin everything else together like the instructions show.
The tent is ok, just ok, not great, not terrible, although it is pretty terrible in the wind, but what do you expect for 60 quid.

I need assembly instruction for 8 person cabin dome tent with screen house


Clean the ground of any rocks, logs or big sticks. Open the stuff sack and pull out all of the contents. Pull the poles out of their pole bag and set them aside. Remove the tent stakes and set them next to the tent.

  • 2 Lay out the tent poles and assemble them. Push the rod blanks together to make the tent poles that will support the mesh tent body.
  • 3 Unroll the mesh tent over the cleared ground. Take care not to step on or walk on the mesh panels. Avoid sticks and snags, as the mesh rips easier than nylon tent fabric.
  • 4 Clip the Timbertop tent pole clips to the poles. There are no tent pole sleeves because Timbertop uses external pole clips for its mesh tents. Criss-cross the tent poles and push the tent pole tips into the metal holes at the end of the pole clip lines. The mesh tent will now be standing upright.
  • 5 Place one tent stake into the ground and through a pole strap stake hole. Pull the tent out as you insert the stake to keep the mesh panels tight. Stake down each pole strap around the perimeter of the tent. Unzip the doors to enter the tent. Zip up the doors quickly after entry to keep bugs and insects out of the tent.

    I have an Outbound Sierra-1 tent with no instructions for putting it up, can you help?


    Lay the tent out. Thread the black poles diagonally and the grey through the front. Insert a pin to one of the black poles and then work the tent to the other end. Then put the other pin in by gently bending the pole. Make sure the tent is smoothed out as you bend it. Then insert a pin to the other pole. Lift the tent up with the fully connected pole and then smooth the tent out over the other pole. Do the same operation with the grey pole. Tie the tent up in the middle to the black poles. Attach the 'flysheet'. Then peg out the guy ropes.

    No instructions giving to erect our tent 6 man regatta hyperdome model no 927/5887


    I bought one of these yeaterday. The instructions - for what they are worth are sewn inside the carry bag. So I decided to put it up today. Not as easy as i would have thought, but then this is my first tent of this size. ( saw a nice Outwell Montana 4 in Millets for 225.00 which would have been my tent of choice). But at half price in Argos I couldn't argue that one.


    So to put it up.....
    lay out the fly sheet in the approximate final position. put poles in as per instructions ..blue to back red to middle and blue to front.. across the tent. ( the pole guides are all colour coded.) Make sure poles are in pins at the base of fly sheet (bending gently to attach). these are attached by the black elastic straps.put in porch pole, put in front to back poles left and right.

    Anchor back of tent temporarily with pegs. Lift from porch forward to lift tent. Temporarily peg base of poles, straighten out so that the straps inside tent are approximately perpendicular to each other. Move poles to tension flysheet and tighten anchor points on flysheet using straps buckles to pull flysheet down as far as possible ( to help prevent draughts)., anchor guy lines when happy with final position.

    Put up inside ground sheet and attach to points on inside of flysheet. put up rooms starting with the rear yellow hook and work around to front red hook.

    These instructions were not specifically provided but this was our first try and probably could be improved on. It requires 2 people for speed if nothing else.

    Enjoy

    I need instructions to put up a Cocam tent model HPT 86052


    Hi, Have the assembly instructions for putting up this tent if you still need? Chinese manufacturer! although in English but to be honest not very helpful. We managed to break 1 of the fibreglass poles just trying to assemble it in back garden. We are not exactly tent novices but we found this paticularly difficult with no room for error. TIP- Measure it out before you start. Rubber! Sorry metal tent pegs dont help! Would I advise to buy? I dont think so! If you still need instructions message back and I will scan for you.

    I have a disney princess tent that goes over a twin bed and i lost the instructions to putting it together and i need help.


  • 1

    Remove the tent and poles from the packaging. Select an indoor area with a high ceiling or an outdoor area without overhead obstacles. The poles are not excessively long but they will be difficult to assemble without space.

  • 2

    Lay the Princess tent with the floor on the ground. Pull on each corner to tighten the floor. Assemble the two tent poles by inserting the male sections into the metal ferrules.

  • 3

    Slide one pole through each of the diagonal sleeves. Place the end of each pole in the fabric pockets on the corners. This will flex the poles and raise the tent body.

  • 4

    Place the fabric roof on top of the tent. Attach the hooks on each corner of the roof to the loops on the top of the pole sleeves. The roof fabric will stretch tight and cover the ventilation gap in the tent ceiling.

    Need instruction manual for the Ridgeway Moab Model 89034. 4 room tent


    I borrowed one of these and got most of the job done. Here's what I ended up doing:
    At a site with good drainage, a little uphill, stake down the floor of the tent
    Longest two poles go through the twin sleeves in the center/top. They are color coded red and yellow
    These two poles are anchored at the base by the center color coded ring_peg
    The tube ends of the fiberglass poles. Fit over these pegs.

    The slightly shprter fiberglass poles go trhough the two blue sleeves.
    These poles get anchored on one end by a yellow ring peg and on the other by a red ring peg. They hold the vented windows up.

    The arch shaped pole is threaded through a black sleeve atop the entrance to the. Tent.
    The arch is anchored on either side by a red ring peg on one end and a yellow peg on the other.

    Stake the lines from the screen windows outwards from the tent

    Spread the tarp over the top and stake the corners to shelter the screened top from rain
